    Great on board staff and amenities
    • The check in process is better at Dublin than at Holyhead where the kiosks were slow to open and car drivers were confused about where to queue. Also at Holyhead although we were travelling Premium and should have had express boarding we were amongst the last to board. We asked for the reason and the crew member explained that it was to enable us to disembark more quickly. A perfectly good reason but until we asked there was no communication bout why we were last to board. Once on board the Stena team there were superb and really looked after us. Departure was delayed because of Storm Ciara but the Captain kept us all well informed and did a great job of getting us back to Dublin with minimal discomfort despite fairly stormy seas.

    Yet another alright boat if you're not hungry.
    • After check in, I wasn't able to find any bit of lawn for my dog, the food selection at the terminal was very limited and expensive. On the boat, I was quite happy with the comfort and the staff. The food could have been worse, but it was quite bland and expensive and the coffee from the canteen was absolutely pathethic.
